Jeans: G-Star Raw. 'I love the hand-sewn seams and details.'

Trainers: New Balance. 'I have four older sisters. Growing up, we all wore New Balance. It was our thing.'

Shopping: Selections, in Central. 'It's a great consignment store that also features originals from local designers. I prefer independent boutiques to chains.'

Dance wear: 'I use my old T-shirts and street clothes.'

Choreography: dance piece Cafe Muller by Pina Bausch. 'It speaks to the raison d'etre of movement, all the emotion and creativity behind a gesture.'

Restaurant: a cha chaan teng close to home. 'The satay beef instant noodles, with an iced milk tea, are the ultimate comfort food.'

Book: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. 'It made me cry.'

Dancers: Rosas Company. 'Their work is about the deconstruction of everyday human movement.'

Music: Emilie Simon. 'She has now surpassed Bjork on my most-played list. I imagine she uses techniques of dance choreography in her songwriting.'

Community service: Breeze Across Us. 'My friend Ng Sze-wan created this programme to teach dance to the visually impaired.'

With HK$1 million in your pocket:

'I would put some aside for a masters degree in architecture or design, give some to my family, invest in my friends' art projects then go travelling with the rest - not coming back till all the money was spent.'

Place in Hong Kong: Tap Mun (also known as Grass Island). 'It's the best place to experience open sky.'
